OK. we need learn testcase more.

[read test program source code... ]

this program makes `cat /proc/sys/kernel/msgmni` * 10 processes.
At least, one process creation need one userland stack page (i.e. one anon)
+ one kernel stack page (i.e. one unaccount page) + one pagetable page.

In my 1GB box environment, default msgmni is 11969.
Oh well, the system physical ram (255744) is less than needed pages (11969 * 3).

In addition, those processes call msgsnd(lrand48() % 99) 1000 times.
msgsnd makes one kmalloc. it mean kernel makes tons random size slab heap and
it become very fragment.

Ummm, I think this test don't gurantee success on 1GB box.


note: I use distro kernel (Fedora11: kernel-2.6.29+ ).
